ne of the San Diego Comic Con’s biggest attractions in 2011, Business Review Canada got exclusive insight into why Zachary Levi from NBC’s Chuck not only promotes nerd culture with his clothing line The Nerd Machine, but also gives back to fans with his hosting of Nerd HQ.

Because of this, Zachary Levi has become one of the main representatives of nerd culture.

I was like, maybe we have a deal here, maybe something that could work,” said Zachary Levi to Business Review Canada. [READ THE REST HERE]
